Our entire family had such a fun time this summer at Bridges Bay! The water park was great as was the outside pool. It was great that we could dock our boat there as well. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back!

Very rude front desk. Dirty rooms. Very expensive hotel with very poor attitudes on all the staff. The pool area during our 5 days didnt see even 1 person smile or acknowledges us other than to complain to us. Very disappointing stay and we had a 3 bedroom suite and spent alot of money there. On a good note braccos...

My parents and I stayed at your resort for a few days after the fourth of July. The elevators didn't work and my parents didn't use the bathroom all night because the toilet didn't work. When my dad requested someone to fix the toilet they gave him a plunger. It is not the task of a quest to unplug a...

The resort has great amenities and overall has everything the vacationer may need. A few issues: the boat parking area is a muddy parking lot that is a complete mess to use... The rooms need better cleaning and it's time for new paint, carpet and to clean some of the spider webs out.

We had a group of twelve of us stay for a few days at bridges bay. The staff, rooms and location were perfect. This was the first time any of us have been to Okoboji and we all agreed this is certainly a place we would come back to

We asked the desk clerk for a grocery store close by and she told us about a Sunshine foods 1 mile away which we never did find. It took us driving around to find the local Walmart only 5 miles away. I am not sure if it was a language barrier or what, however I truly believe front desk staff...

My family was very excited to come to Okoboji for Labor Day weekend, and we wanted to stay in a nice hotel for the weekend. I shopped around and found some nice places, but decided to pay more for Bridges Bay to make it extra nice. We were all very disappointed. The pool was the only nice part, plus we...

We stayed here when we were in Okobogi for a wedding and it was one that my family had saved a block of rooms. We paid a high price for the room because it is prime summer season in the area. But if I am paying that price I expect nicer amenities...bedding and furnishings were standard hotel issue...polyester and uncomfortable....

This is a wonderful place for families. This was our first stay and we were happy with our time spent at this resort. It is very close to Arnold's Park, the Emporium and other fun places in the Okoboji area. We had a great time in the inside waterpark and at the outside pool. Our suite was fantastic! The view...

The lobby area scared me a bit when checking in. The elevators were slow and not enough of them. However, when we got to our suite, we were relieved to see a great suite awaited. Everything you could want from the kitchen, dining room, living room and two bedrooms. Gas fireplace, blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc. Bathrooms are a little...
